it's known in times of extream the body has the means to shut off systems or give an otherwise unhealthy shot of adrenaline to better the odds of survival
edit: I started typing this under the impression the that the expert refrencend was lazlow he was infact mazlow. as I said most of this for is top of my head and entered into a smart phone with a microphone plugged to the point voice transcribe often fails and often through gloves. quiet frequently I'm also intelectualizing as a form of discociative escape and sometimes between screams as always with a previously confirmed add and I suspect milf uncaught dislexia and discalcula as well. not that math plays a huge roll in lack of adgearance to proof reading or symantic rules but the underlying functional memory deficit doesn't always play nice. regardless in areas I've already typed I've decided not to correct the uh.. misnomer. if I don't die or end up disabled and disfigured from unchecked illegal actions by Paul and Marlene I'd like to one day look into how human memory may degrade and how similar or dissimilar that is to something the computer world knows as bit rot. accept it or otherwise we now know human brains and existance while heart beats are machine enough we can program computers to interpret brain waves and put put an image congered in one's head to a monitor. which has some crazy implications considering dry external electrodes have now been used to do just that. crazy awesome and crazy to discuss because despite legetimcy and technical feasibility these claims in depth could easily leave one in a mental hospital. we've also nailed down a few things like differences between today's computers and our brains from a systems architecture view are things like, in the brain processing and storage is often the same hardware. in a computer we have 3 levels of memory with only one persisting through a power loss event and each being faster and lower time cost to access but more expensive and thus smaller in storage. data is pulled from slow hdd or somewhat quick solid state drive into comparatively fast RAM and the parts being executed and what's next or a quick link table is stored in cpu cach. the quick links are called pointers, they occupy a cache unit and point to a ram location to quickly fetch the hopefully already in ram bits the program needs next either via program or user request.
I digress quite a bit but the hope of this post is to convince you that we hurt people's chance of sucess, over coming issues remaining free, learning and bettering or even defending them selves and escaping if we don't somewhat consider the machine nature of human life while our hearts beat. I'm not trying to comment on what does or does not happen before or after and even with in this realization or idealogival framework there still exists room for originality and random. iirc something called the plank threshold is the limit at which quantum effects effect the macro world. when it gets down to brain cells as far as I can see there exists the possibility that quantum random and perhaps entanglement can break preditermism or even the worst garbage and low energy in low though out cycle if only for breif moments.
again where you read lazlow I meant Mazlow I'm leaving it to show I can tollorate my own mistakes and as demonstration of emotional state impacting cognition and recall
Who says Yer Ole Mind Has any Prereqs or Bindings?
lazlow was probably first to point out something similar to the bodies responce to hypothermia is natural as if regards to cognative function and a list of prerequisites.
Physics seems to suggest this as well. there's some quantum fuzz that keeps the possibility of free thought and moments of brilliance at any level of energy but at the end of the day thought consumes calories and repair and or maintence of body and noggin or formation of the network for though from childhood through life
requires chemicals as well as raw energy converted. we can sometimes produce required Chems given energy but some must be consumed directly. some required are best produced by organisms that live in our intestine and share a symbiotic relation with us. our gut flora. they eat what passes through your gut and do the conversion work then as gross as it may sound dedicate something our bodies need to run at all or stay running and self repairing. they also help crowd out infection. like physically "yo opertunistic microbe punk ye anint got room to set up shop hear.. beat it". in acordence with the lack of medical ethics and ease of forced encounter in MN I feel the need to state that I in no way belive gut flora are speaking English and when I refer to what the badge said was MD boris as mallard duck its purely an ego defence along these lines.
anyway... the state of our gut flora is also huge in having the preqs to the point that those who can aford it sometimes resort to stool transplants to rebuild diminish gut flora.
let me put stool transplants in plane English for you. a feeding tube is inserted nose to stomach or possibly gut (top of my head what I can recall as usual for this post). derp more plane English. they pump shit through a tube in your nose down into your gut. other people's shit. defication, fecese, stool, its a rose by many names but you'd be ill advised to claim it doesn't stink.
back in scope med sci and physics all dictate that health and thought require at very least input of energy. an extension of this logic is, if it takes humans manufacturing a tube then testing others for bio deversity of intestine and finally extracting then purifying one person's... er.. trash? to restore another's health.. the conclusion drawn is restoring proper function is probably way more energy inefficient than maintaining it. but in a system where cash buys what's required and police refuse to enforce fellony level theft.. death is more likely than restoration.
if you are still lost on what I mean by energy... . it's the whole atp thing you probably disregarded never learned maybe forgot. judging by modern memes you might remember that the mitocondrea is the power house of the cell...pretty interrelated but this is a novel as is.
if you stick with memory lane and had the experiance of hs or esp college finals you might recall being particularly famished after a study or cram session. suggesting that just working your brain probably burned a lot of calories. possibly alternatively suggesting someone at a young age showed you a text book before every feeding of your favorite dog treat. litmus test, do you salivate when looking at text books? probably stick with thought requires and consumes calories
on off all or nothing is common these days but pathological to pedestrian. what I'm interested in calling to attention is the caloric marginal cost per thought. aka after that fixed cost to manufacture cognition is satisfied what does each additional unit cost and or as this isn't economics, where are the wrenches introduced by lacking the calories or the nesicarly chemical nutrient soup to have neuro transmitters and how might that impare range of thoughts ideas and or decision making.
subjectively I can tell you deprived of nutrition to starved thought comes in blurps or patches of intermittent clarity.
this isn't word for word said but some accounts I've read of the mn starvation experiment get pretty close. the over all conclusion was that lacking the proper or enough nutriance has profound negative impacts on not just the body but the mind as well.
Which also is echoed in lazlows higherarchy of needs even if that isn't directly mentioned and wasn't the intent.
the body when cold is known to cut off or limit blood flow to the extremities. it tries to keep the chest and brain at a temp they won't take oermant damage st the expense of functions that are less critical. critical becomes situational. ie your legs might be critical to hunting for your next meal but if your brain has frost burn your hunt isn't likely to go so well and or won't happen at all. as heat loss is a function of surface area andore complex thermal mass and transfer equations the simplified result is it helps to limit how much of the body gets warm blood because ecey unit of distance a unit of blood flows its going to give away that much more heat. the ability of the body to burn calories to make this heat is already surpassed when this occurs. this is only somewhat relevant to the brain. mainly I include it to show the body is capable of turning parts off
fight or flight
Dogs and tricks
thoughts are more than electricical
I'll come back to this if I can. have to run at the moment. I know I have a ways to linking economic mobility etc but it's a good start
another answer may lay with stress hormones influencing retention or short to long term memory conversions.
there's also back to basics a thought costs x callories generating y possibilities to consider costs x*y or worse, possibly better but if wager chemical limited and if depleted needs time. fully me hypothisizing though I can't support that yet.
point I want is that if there are no bounds on the what it's to consider the congsnitr load one most carry to prioritize what risks or tasks preventing risks are done first or redone /preffrenced and lug all that in active memory. the realizations can also be quite taxing. someone can try to kill you then falsely report to police and they later refuse documentinget alone acting on possibility and evidence as to if thst happened but continue acting to allow party to illegal take from you. this is demonstrating assumed bounds are in correct and puts the brain in recalculation at best. if things taken include things like cookwear and stress preceded the down swing in ability to make food and callery input meet situational or average demand the framework for not much good and low likelyhood of postive outcomes probably becomes clear.
what's worse is the question, walk away from what might take 5 to 20 years to have disposable income to replace and still be in malnourished must adapt but sci suggested worst State to try or stick it out?
if the party breaking the law to pit you here has relatively high levels of disposable income and time, what are the odds you earn the means to relocate faster than they may take them through crime?
all of this also likely negatively impacts life span as well.. ie do or do not when police won't enforce laws that leave people starving they also decrease time alive to try again
